The BMC has announced that outdoor climbing, also known as rock climbing, is to be renamed 'Wild Climbing' in line with other pursuits that naturally take place in 'the wild' - AKA the outdoors - such as 'Wild Swimming.'
Ahem, I think you will find we were ahead of the curve here.
Aye, there's Yorkshire... and there's everywhere else.
Not bad...... but 11 years and you still haven't bested this masterpiece of April Foolery.....
That’s great news! Now I can go wild walking to go Wild Climbing, after spending the morning Wild Gardening and visiting the local out door market or ‘Wild Shopping’.
Good effort and I applaud your article! 😂😂
I proposed some time ago dropping the 'r' from 'trad' so we were left with 'Rad' climbing. So yoof don't you think!

Wouldn't dropping the 'r' give us 'Tad' climbing? Mind you, compared to the endless energy of youth, a tad is all I ever get done on a typical day of faffing and finishing early.
Ahh that was the original adjustable-angle training board, loved that one!
Y'know, I had a strange premonition about this article yesterday...
Sorry but this name is already trade-marked, you will hearing from my lawyers tomorrow.
